Main Tank (MT)
Protection of Feral. Crush immune preferred.
Off Tank (OT)
Same as MT. Warrior preferred (for Shield Bash).
Holy or Restoration. At least two.
Spell Interrupters
Mage, Shaman, Rogue, Warrior or Warlock with a Felhound pet.
Priest, Hunter, Shaman or Warlock with a Felhound pet.


  1. Julianne -
    1. MT tanks her in a corner.
    2. Spell Interrupters prevent her from casting any spell, thus reducing combat time (less heals) and overall healing needed.
    3. Dispellers remove her Devotion buff as soon as she casts it.
  2. Romulo -
    1. MT tanks him in another corner, with his back to a wall, but not against it.
    2. Melee DPS position themselves at Romulo's side, trying to avoid both his Backward Lunge and Deadly Swathe.
    3. Warrior disarms Romulo to reduce his damage output.
    4. Dispellers remove his Daring buff as soon as he casts it.
  3. Romulo and Julianne -
    1. Both rise where they died. MT tanks Romulo in one corner, OT tanks Julianne in the other.
    2. Individual boss tactics remain the same as mentioned above.
    3. DPS deals damage to either Romulo or Julianne until he/she reaches 10% of his/her life, then switch to DPS the other.
      1. Julianne's heals should be watched carefully. In case the first target's health rises above 10%, the raid must DPS it again before continuing with the other.
    4. Once the second target is dead, all DPS must return immediately to the first target, in order to kill it within 10 seconds.
      1. Failing the above will result in the first boss returning with full health to life. Raid condition permitting, step 3 must be repeated.
